    Default Samsung S3 screen not responding to touch

    Out for a run today got caught in rain, phone was in fanny pack did not get visibly wet.
    Opened it after running home saw moisture in back of phone and had some error messages
    invalid SD and SIM cards. I took SIM card and SD and Battery out placed all and the phone
    in bag of rice for 4-5 hours. It helped except that I have no access to
    touch screen. I have received messages, and emails so I can tell my SIM card is ok. I have no error messages
    regards to SD card either just can't "unlock" with swipe

    any advice? will more time in the rice help?

    It's worth a shot putting it in the rice for longer periods of time. If that doesn't work, the water may just have gotten to some vital internal components that affect touch screen usage. If that is the case, then you'd have to replace your device.
